A group of fundamentalist Jewish settlers burnt on Thursday at night an olive orchard in Safa village, north west of Hebron, in the southern part of the West Bank. Dozens of settlers torched the grove while the Israeli army did not attempt to intervene or stop them.
The residents called the local civil defense and firefighters but the army prevented them from reaching the grove.
Soldiers also attacked an international peace activist and confiscated his camera for taking pictures of the assault and the soldiers.
The land in question is 25 Dunams (6.17 Acres) planted with Olives and some evergreens.
